Detached two bedroom bungalow

Lower Tregarne Bungalow

A detached two bedroom bungalow ripe for improvement enjoying good sized

gardens in a rural setting close to the sought after south coast village of

Mawnan Smith and the Helford River.


Mawnan Smith is a small rural village near Falmouth on Cornwall’s south coast just above the Helford River.  The property itself is tucked away in a quiet sheltered hamlet ¾ of a mile along a country lane on the outskirts of the village.  With easy access to the highly respected sailing waters and creeks of the Helford River, it is an area particularly sought after by keen sailors who will appreciate the open coastal waters of Falmouth Bay along the scenic stretch of Cornwall’s south coast.  The bustling village of Mawnan Smith features a grocery store/Post Office together with a variety of other amenities taking care of many daily requirements.  The historic port of Falmouth approx. 5 miles away is home to the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth and Exeter Universities, the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and Marina, primary and secondary schooling and a huge array of shops and restaurants.  Closer to hand are the beautiful and nationally important Trebah and Glendurgan semi-tropical gardens.  The county’s main centre of commerce, schooling and healthcare, Truro, is approx. 14 miles distant where there is the main Paddington/Penzance railway line and of course the magnificent cathedral. 


Said by the current owners to have been built by his father in 1935 as a farm worker’s cottage, this individual, detached bungalow would benefit from general updating and improvement.  It currently provides two double bedrooms, complemented by a lounge, dining room, kitchen and modern bathroom.  It has undoubted potential to become a high quality home reflecting its charming surroundings.  For many it will be the generous plot of ¼ acre, abutting farmland, that will appeal as it provides both privacy and space either for the retired or those with families.  A concrete screening test (Mundic Report) was carried out on the 08/02/2008 concluding that the concrete used in the block walls to be Class A.  A copy is available on request.


Level lawns extend mainly to the front and side enjoying a southerly aspect.   The gardens to the side is of particularly generous proportions, fenced and hedged and abut farmland to the rear.  There is a pedestrian pathway leading down to the road and to the rear an enclosed courtyard.  Hereto is parking for two or three vehicles and a driveway that leads back down to the road. 

NB. The granite within the lower parking bay are excluded from the sale
